>> stephanie: it is getting exciting. >> stephanie: i just posted a piece called fiscal cliff let's take the plunge. but it was an interesting analogy of what tim geithner was saying. >> that's exactly right. and we have the leverage. the president knows he has theed with at his back and that's the solid election victory, where he reason quite explicitly on raising the tax rates on the top 2%. so he know the american people support it. the majority of romney voters on exit polls supported that position. so this is not just dealing with boehner. it's dealing with the american people. and the most important thing is to get a long-term component of the plan and the election results favor him, number 1.
number 2, january 1st comes we put a bill on the floor, we quote lower taxes because we couldn't provide tax relief at that point for 98% of americans, and there's no way they would vote against that. >> stephanie: this raising the debt ceiling debacle he said is not a game i'm going to play again. >> we blew it last time. and if you remember the republicans for the first time in the history of the country, literally started playing russian roulette with america's credit, and it was such brinksmanship that we ended up having the markets panic, and had the fist downgrade in the history of our country. and that cost billions of dollars to taxpayers. in the past both parties have grandstanded on the debt ceiling
increase. the out of power party always using it to make their criticisms of the parties in power. butting grandstanding is not merely pulling the plug. and that's a line that the republican leadership passed in august. and that's catastrophic consequences -- >> stephanie: that is going off cliff in my opinion. >> yes. >> stephanie: and as the president said before that has never before been used as a negotiating point for one party. >> that's right. either party -- if this becomes a tool that one party or either party can use, where literally we hold hostage the american economy, and where to achieve your goal you literally destroy the confidence that world needs will pay our bills. that is highly destructive and
the harm you'll do far outweighs any gain you claim to be speaking. so we have got to draw a line and if they actually -- they being the republicans in this case actually assert that then in my view the president has the ability to use the 14th amendment, and pay our bills. >> stephanie: that's right. this l.a. times article i referred to talking about a lot of people wrote to george bush and said don't do this. can letting a failed tax policy die be such a bad thing? >> that's exactly right. our tax revenues are down. historically they have been about 18 to 19% of the gross domestic product. part of that is the recession, but significant loss of revenue is because of the bush tax
policies and it was based on this idealogical fiction if you lower taxes it will increase revenues. and their focus was lowering taxes at the high end. we had higher tax rates under clinton, and we created 40 million jobs and had a surplus. then the bush folks came in put the war on the credit card prescription drugs on the credit card, and lowered taxes at the high end, and we had only 700,000 jobs and had astonishing deficits since then. >> stephanie: the same l.a. times piece even makes that case with the war in afghanistan winding down the military is asking for less than congress wants to give. so i think there has been so much hysteria over this fiscal cliff that i'm not sure it's warranted. >> that's exactly right. and also the ryan budget you
know their doctrine -- and it really is doctrining. lower taxes for the wealthy, and that will trickle down. untrue. number 2, increase spending in the pentagon way beyond what the pentagon wants and that will make us three. and that cut back on things like education and scientific research and somehow we'll have a stronger future. none of those things make any sense. at the core of the ryan approach, and he is representative of the dominant republican point of view now, is that you are on your own. it is an ayn rand kind of deal. if you are well off and can afford private school and you
can give in a gated community, that's the way it ought to be and all of us ought to strive for that but the fact is when this country has done well we have had policies that have given the middle class an opportunity to succeed, and it takes a public/private partnership. >> stephanie: yep. representative, how do you see this playing out, and how about the bill for the middle class tax cuts in the house? what is going to happen? >> they are going to cave. we just don't know when. they have to. because they are in this bizarre position of resisting having tax rates go down for 98% of the american people only because they insist on having them go down for the top 2% and that's not sustainable, and they know it. it's a total political loser for them. so really the question is whether they'll capitlate before
january 1st or after january 1st. and they don't have to go to father professor, grover norquist. >> stephanie: exactly. representative welch thank you for giving us an update. >> thank you.

[ bell chimes ] >> stephanie: exactly that. [ ♪ patriotic music ♪ ] >> stephanie: since then the
budget deficit has ballooned, the economy has spiraled into the greatest decline since the great depression history has proved that 450 economists were exactly correct. this could push the american economy off of a fiscal cliff, am i missing something here? can it be such a bad thing. not really said the cbo. if congress extents current policy the debt and deficit will increase slowing the economy and dramatically increasing interest costs. because of the deal congress and the president made last year it be result in across the board budget reductions still there will be no decreases in social security medicare and veteran's benefits. defense spending would take a big hit, but because of a
windown in afghanistan some military leaders are asking for less than congress is willing to shell out. from 1990 to 1999 defense spending decreased by 1% a year. this weakened military is nonsense. jim we have like what 27,000 times to blow up the country with the next amount of nukes. >> and we still have massive armies in europe protecting them from a massive soviet union. >> yeah. >> korea is another issue -- we do need people there. >> stephanie: right, but he points out who is behind all of this fiscal cliff cage rattling. the rich and their friends. any changes on the low, low, low capital gains tax. so will congress pass a bill? in a pig's eye.
what is much more likely is to kick the can down the road and let the next congress figure it out. here is another idea let's join hands and walk to the bottom of the cliff together it is not very far down. america will go back to tax rates that work better than the cuts we have been living with. congress will be forced to do something for a change. republicans and democrats will have to work object to to repair rather than filibustering talking points perhaps america is on the cliff of a fiscal opportunity.
